They wax you first, pluck each remaining hair,
to make you smoother than when you were born.
The air-brushed oiled wet slick pink cunts of porn
are not more naked. Once they’ve stripped you bare
a little glue goes on. It feels quite cold.
One crystal, then another. The design
will take a while. You may as well resign
yourself to lying still as you were told
as a red rose emerges, or a heart
with snakes entwining it. The jewels will flash
and dazzle as you dance. And if a rash
follows, put lotion on the itching part
and pick off all the crystals in the shower.
This is the way we celebrate our power.
